FWIW, I largely don't believe in feature freezes.

Instead I believe that since people are trying to keep GDB stable (while 
still allowing change) a branch can be made, well in theory, at any 
time.  When it comes down to it, GDB is a user interface, and user 
interfaces are best implemented iterativly.


PS: I'd just like to take this oportunity to deny all rumors that the ``bunyip'' is a figment of

the Australian imagination (It is real, I've been attacked by one and 
can show the scars .... ;-) and that Toronto has an air polution problem 
(cough, splutter, ...) :-)
